Infrared Plastic Welding
Particle-free joints with a high mechanical load capacity. Ideal for sensors, electronic enclosures and medical products.
Branson’s infrared plastic welding systems offer clean-joining of similar and dissimilar materials, ideal for delicate parts. A highly precise process and 3D control provides aesthetically pleasing welds into complex product designs.
With Laser Plastic Welding and Plastic Vibration Welding, Emerson has the broadest portfolio of joining technologies and provides unsurpassed technical support.
During infrared welding, both part halves are held rigidly in position near an infrared emitting platen.
The platen then emits powerful infrared light into both parts along the determined joint path, usually a circle or line. The platen is quickly removed, and the part halves are immediately driven together and allowed to re-solidify under pressure
Infrared welding is frequently chosen for applications with complex and irregular shapes. Infrared is a useful joining technology in applications requiring strong hermetic seals or when flash and particulate need to be reduced. Infrared welding allows for clear-to-clear joining without the use of additives.
Non-Contact Plastic Welding for particulate-free and aesthetically clean joints on medium-sized parts. Key features include enhanced design flexibility to weld along contours and 3D parts, along with clean weld bead aesthetics.
